Weight Loss & Bariatric Surgery | Overlook Medical Center | Summit, NJ


Weight Loss & Bariatric Surgery

Morbid obesity is defined as more than 100 pounds overweight and/or suffering from obesity-related health problems such as heart disease, diabetes, sleep apnea, joint disease or infertility. For those people, often the safest and most effective way to achieve substantial long-term weight loss is through a comprehensive approach that includes medical, psychological, nutritional, surgical, diet and exercise solutions.

At Atlantic Health Weight & Wellness Center, located at Morristown Medical Center, Overlook Medical Center and Newton Medical Center, we’re one of the only hospital-affiliated programs in the region to offer coordinated metabolic medicine and bariatric surgery.

What’s more, we’re recognized for safety and a history of positive patient outcomes. Morristown Medical Center and Overlook Medical Center are accredited by the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program – a joint accreditation program between the American College of Surgeons and the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery.
